Question

How to access minutes balance and due date?

I understand there is a pre-installed minutes/due date app? How do I access it and do I have to go online every time to request it?

Sorry for not being helpful. I guess I don't understand what you mean by "minutes balance" or "due date."

I just assumed that you meant how many minutes you have left (which doesn't apply to this phone as the minutes are unlimited) and "due date" meaning when your next payment is due. I guess I'm not understanding what you are asking.

If you want to clarify, I can take another shot.

I'm wondering if you are referring to the "Straight Talk My Account" app? If so, it's nothing more than the account summary that you can access online. It's very limited to what it reports.

It does not give remaining minutes (or with the Unlimited plans that this phone requires, "remaining minutes" does not really apply).

It does not give remaining data or data used. Now that it is known and defined that we are all under a 2.5 GB soft cap pertaining to data usage, it would be nice to know how much data we have used reported by the Straight Talk or the carrier as the hardware reports are not that accurate. This app is useless for that purpose.

It will give you the expiration date of your plan, however. It will also allow you to buy service and generally manage your account. And yes, you will have to have internet access to see your account information updated or to manage the account.

Here is more information about the app from Google Play (copy-and-paste):

There are 3 types of memory available on this phone: System memory, SD card memory, and removable microsd card memory.

System memory and SD card memory are onboard the phone and can't be changed.

Applications that are pre-installed on this phone permanently reside in system memory. If you like to install and uninstall programs this phone is not a good choice.

differance between dynamic & logic

LG Optimus Dynamic L38C uses Verizon (CDMA). LG Optimus Logic L35G use AT&T (GSM) that comes with it's own SIM card. That's the major difference so choose according to the one Walmart.com and tracfone.com sells for your zip code.

Aside from the SIM card slot the hardware is the same.

The Logic has up to 7.5 hours of talk time and a 800Mhz processor. The Dynamic has 6 hours of talk and a 1Ghz processor.

If you purchased this phone through Straight Talk (at Walmart or directly through Straight Talk), you will have to purchase service from Straight Talk ...or Walmart via Straight Talk service cards.

Jackie, if you purchased this phone through Straight Talk (at Walmart or directly through Straight Talk), you will have to purchase service from Straight Talk ...or Walmart via Straight Talk service cards.

Disregard the "Verizon" message as this phone uses the Verizon network but Straight Talk is the provider so you have to purchase service from Straight Talk and not Verizon.

I see that you posted over a week ago so I'm assuming you've figured it out by now but if not, call Straight Talk to start or add service if you are having difficulty doing online.

If you are talking about the logic, it is virtually the same phone. This is a straight talk(owned by tracphone) phone but it uses verizon towers, the logic uses att or tmobile.

Yes, I have done this with several phones and it is easy. BBBBUUUUTTTT
This phone has an extremely small internal memory around 500 mb and is not able to play the better games. As a music player it will work great with an SD card. I would consider a phone with at least 1 GB of internal memory. There are cheaper phones similar to this one if you don't care about provider or which towers they use. The LG Optimus Logic is the same as this phone. Also try Net10 or Virgin Mobile.

The L38C LG Straight Talk that I have will automatically enter Google Play for the apps that you want to download called "Play Store" with a white bag picture. It will pick up WiFi signals and tell you but I ignore them because the cell already has internet on it. Otherwise once you leave that spot, you will have to do some steps to get signals for the regular built in program.
